PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona transportation officials are recommending alternate routes for westbound travelers affected by the closure of Interstate 10 in southeastern California.

The closure is due to a bridge collapse caused by runoff from heavy rain. I-10 is the main highway route between Phoenix and Southern California.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says I-10 westbound is closed in western Arizona near Quartzsite at State Route 95.

ADOT says westbound I-10 drivers will be detoured to State Route 95. Drivers traveling to Southern California may take SR 95 south to Interstate 8 and then travel west to California.

Motorists may also travel on SR 95 north to Parker, where drivers may cross into California using State Route 62 westbound.

Further north, Interstate 40 is another route for travel between Arizona and California.
